CINCINNATI – WCPO 9 News Reporter Kristen Swilley will become the primary news anchor for the weekend editions of “Good Morning Tri-State.” Kristen joined WCPO 9 in Oct. 2015 as a general assignment reporter. Her first day behind the anchor desk will be May 22. “Good Morning Tri-State Weekends” airs Saturday and Sunday 5-7 a.m. and 8-9 a.m.

“I’ve known Kristen Swilley for nearly 10 years since her days as an intern in Florida. It has been an absolute pleasure to watch her grow into the journalist she has become. She has a deep commitment to our community and to telling great stories that others miss,” said Mike Canan, senior director of local content for WCPO 9 News. “I know our weekend viewers will enjoy starting their Saturdays and Sundays with her.”

Multimedia Journalist and 9 First Warning Weather Forecaster Raven Richard will be joining the “Good Morning Tri-State Weekend” team on June 26. Raven started at WCPO 9 in June 2019. She is a knowledgeable weather forecaster and experienced storyteller. She has reported on a wide variety of topics with an emphasis on science and technology. “Anyone who has ever met Raven knows that she is someone you can’t help but like because of the way she treats all of those around her. That same personality shines forward through the camera. Every time Raven filled in on the weather, we would get calls and emails about how great she is,” said Canan. “I’m excited that Raven will bring our audience the weather more regularly. She will be part of an incredible team with Kristen.” 

Meteorologist Austin Winfield will continue in his position as weekend meteorologist until moving out-of-state. His last day at WCPO 9 is June 25.
